Flying Start Logo

Our course will introduce you to the range of skills and requirements needed for employment within the uniformed public services and will help you to explore the different careers available to you.

Our courses contain a diverse range of interesting and exciting topics, which are based on realistic workplace activities, situations and demands. You will learn through combining classroom-based learning, physical and practical lessons outside the classroom, as well as academic study trips to places, such as Commando Training Centre Royal Marines, Hampshire Fire & Rescue Service and Police HQ and the Defence School of Policing and Guarding (of the British Armed Forces).

Our courses are taught at our main campus in Cosham, where you’ll have access to our sports centre, gym facilities, Library and Study Centre outside of classroom time.
